Pelvic Mesh Twitter Party This Friday

Mesh Medical Device News Desk, January 20, 2017 ~Everybody is Tweeting, even our president-elect.  So for those families impacted by pelvic mesh, here is a chance to figure out what Twitter is all about.

Some mesh-injured women are really experts including Hash tags,  @’s and compelling graphics.

Friday January 20, is a big day for Twitter and mesh-impacted families.

Join in.

If you don’t know how to tweet, go into the pages of Mesh News Desk or find a mesh-related story and hit the little Twitter bird, that will send it to Twitter.

You don’t even need an account but signing up is also very simple.

(Here’s one Pelvic Mesh 101: The Basics  (find the twitter bird at the bottom of the story);  or this one Reporters Resource on Covering Mesh Issues, (again look at bottom of story for the little blue Twitter bird,  


Friday Twitter Parties

About the Author:

I’m National News Editor, Jane Akre and I began Mesh Medical Device News Desk aka Mesh News Desk (MND) in the summer of 2011 just after the Food and Drug Administration issued an explicit warning to the public that complications associated with surgical mesh used for prolapse repair (POP) and incontinence (SUI) are NOT rare! That was the starting point for the litigation you see today and thousands of lawsuits have been filed by women whose lives have been altered, some permanently, by the use of this petroleum-based product.

    I’m not a twitter person, but wouldn’t the twitter party be a great time to reach out to our new president? For a man dogged by the press as women-unfriendly, if he were to help champion their cause with regard to companies like Ethicon who are adversely affected injured women in the US, it would be a great feather in his cap!

      Thanks Tom—you are brilliant! Of course it would…. yes those efforts should be directed at @therealdonaldtrump or whatever he calls himself.
